    One of the reasons many people, including me, supported Obama over Hillary was because he ran a superior campaign, and in my view the election of Bush proves the campaign is at least as important as the candidate. In that context, this is an interesting article:

    http://www.usnews.com/articles/news...-making-progress-with-evangelical-voters.html

    Randy Brinson says he "almost fell out of my chair" when he heard that expected Democratic nominee Barack Obama had chosen Zanesville, Ohio, as the setting for a recent speech in which he embraced the concept of using faith-based groups to help carry out government social service efforts.

    It wasn't that Zanesville struck Brinson as an odd locale. Quite the opposite. It was that Obama had clearly figured out something that Brinson already knew.

    "Zanesville is Ground Zero for conservative evangelicals in Ohio," says Brinson, who, as founder of the voter registration organization "Redeem the Vote," knows a thing or two about where to find conservative Christians. It's a place, he says, that is populated with just the kind of recently reliable Republican voters Obama has tried to woo with a strategy that Brinson and other Christian leaders say they have found remarkable.

    "They've researched where the votes are, and they've thrown away the old Democratic playbooks," says Brinson, who is among the evangelical leaders the Obama camp has reached out to. "Instead of just relying on a large number of urban votes, they're going to suburban areas and reaching out to a large number of conservatives." And so are Obama supporters: the religious political action committee Matthew 25 has already aired a pro-Obama ad on Christian radio in Colorado Springs, Colo., home of evangelical leader James Dobson of Focus on the Family, a harsh critic of the Democratic candidate.

    No way, he gets any Evangelical votes, remember the GOP is sitting on all those Rev. Wright tapes, they will be out as soon as Hillary is safely away. The more he concentrates on his "faith" the more Rev. Wright comes into play.

    What he need to concetrate on his his voter fraud in Philadelphia, because he is really going to need it, if he has any hope of winning Pennsyvania.

    NO way he gets any is a pretty strong statement, interestingly the same article speaks to him making inroads..you mean to tell me he will not get one vote.. a pretty idiotic statement.. but what do you expect.
